About the library
Uppsala University Library is a research library that is open to all.
We provide information resources for research, teaching and learning at the University. The physical and the digital libraries exist in parallel. We develop and make available our collections in new ways, among them through digital publication and digitisation. We want to be an international example in offering study and research environments, both physical and digital.
The University Library is divided in seven departments with different areas of work, and has around 200 employees with broad-ranging competencies within several professional categories.
